If only Kate Middleton can wait until the 29th! That’s when a rare alignment known as the “Star of David” occurs. According to ancient astrologers, this aspect heralds the birth of a king. Astrologically minded historians believe that this was the “star” the three wise men were actually following when Christ was born. Those born on July 29 this year should be blessed with royal qualities–charisma, radiance, and a plethora of inner gifts.
The Star of David (or “Seal of Solomon” as it’s sometimes called) occurs when the planets of two Grand Trines combine to form a perfect star pattern in the horoscope (it’s not possible to see this in the sky, unfortunately). The Grand Water Trine, consisting of Jupiter/Mars, Saturn, and Neptune, blessed us for much of July. At the end of this month it is briefly joined by a Grand Earth Trine of Moon, Venus, and Pluto. With the trines in earth and water signs, this is a creative combination, when you can give form to the ideas that have been whispering in your spirit.
Will something special happen to you on this day? Maybe. The trick with Grand Trines is that you have to notice and use them. Rare planetary configurations are a gift. The heavens are united in a brief and majestic harmony. You can either sing or dance along–or just keep going the way you usually do. I hope you’ll keep your eyes and ears open. Notice whatever comes to you. If it’s a blessing in disguise, use insight to see the ribbons and gold.
